. the other end of it from a policy standpoint is president obama talking about more money for psychiatric services for specifically young people to try to figure out an early age prone to violent behavior. i guess my two questions about that, i wonder, first of all, is this going to necessitate a change in the law about doctor/patient confidentiality? if a red flag, you know, is raised, are we going to need to change the law so the doctor is able to alert the authorities and act on the information? flip side of that is if that's the case and the doctor's empowered to do that, do you think that might cause young people to clam up and not be as forthcoming as we need them to be? >> great questions, steve. i think the answer to the first thing is, yes. you're seeing a proposal in colorado not getting enough attention on the mental health side and proposed a change in the legal standard where now doctors who previously were supposed to inform the authorities if there was some imminent risk to, you know, of harm to others, now will have a slightly, you know, a less stringent standard of substa
and i were talking about you think nixon would have some good advice for obama about how to properly do a second term? surely you can't be serious. >> there are such things as negative role models in life and nixon is not a bad one. something we forget about is nixon by this huge majority, one of the biggest in presidential history. yet, no support, you know, two houses of congress, controlled by the democrats so he overreached. he did something called impoundment. he said, democrats can vote all the programs they want. i'm not going to spend the money. even if it's not for watergate, nixon might have been impeached for this. it shows what presidents do when they feel too weak. president obama we heard a couple of weeks ago said i have read the literature on presidents in second terms who overreach and got the message. >> michael, how have second inaugurations historically differed from first inaugurations? >> well, usually it's sort of a somewhat pale echo of the first. you have a first inaugural speech, a big deal, president suggesting the soaring ideas. second one is more limited, mo
that president obama understands that we're serious. well, i guess that would do it. we always talk about whether or not we're going to kick the can down the road. i think the mood is that we have come to the end of the road. what road? and republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee said this to msnbc's chris jansing. let me ask you if you're willing to shut the government down? >> we're looking at all the options, there is the option of government shutdown, the option of raising the debt ceiling in short-term increments. i think there is a way to avoid default if it requires shutting down portions of the government. let's look at that. >> and in his press conference, president obama quoted speaker john boehner from 2011. >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country but for the worldwide economy. i don't think it is a question that is even on the table. >> and the last question of his press conference, the president was asked if he may be more successful with some of the nuts you just heard from if he spent more quality time with them. >> you and your staff are too
